I called Hiniker Plumbing for a leaky bath tube facet. Over the phone he quoted me $125 and that sounded reasonable. Before he came to the site, he texted me, "Hey,..... after hour right now we have a minimum $250 to go out tonight....." That was 5:33 p.m. At that point I was at his mercy as the leak was getting progressively worse. He came and within 10 minutes he finished the job (installed new brass cartridge). I give him my cc information and he promised he will email me the invoice. That he did, but charged came to $325 for his relatively simple work. I emailed him expressing $325 seemed extremely high for the work. Shortly after my email I received a call from a nice lady (I presume his wife) and she offered me a reimbursement of $25. That maybe a good gesture on her part to keep me happy, but I declined her offer. I guess I just have to accept his price gouging, but most likely I would never use him again.

We used Gary and Hinker plumbing through our warranty company on our home. We just moved to California 2 years ago and Hinker plumbing was sent to do work for us in our master bath which was performed timely, with great workmanship , and friendly service. Then on another incident my warranty company sent a different plumber to replace a cracked severely leaking toilet-- and that plumber tried to say that it was originally not installed properly and it was not able to be replaced under warranty (the toilet was 9 years old) I got Gary out for a second opinion and it was from wear & tear, soGary was able to replace the toilet under warranty. Once again with timely, friendly. & Great workmanship. We will not use any other plumber now but Hinker plumbing !! We really appreciated everything they did for us and we highly recommend them !
hes been working under my mobile home doing repairs for quite a few years now and has always been professional i appreciate his work thanks Gary
We needed help on a Saturday afternoon with our plumbing, Toilet was backed up and overflowed twice. We called Gary and he arrived within 20 min and fixed the problem. He was very professional & charged a decent rate for his services. We will definitely call him out again if need be. Thank you!,,
Good work done on short notice, with a good attitude and a fair price. Thank you for your assistance today with the water valve repair! Me and my family appreciate it.
GOT HERE IN 25 MINUTES & TOOK CARE OF A MAJOR LEAK COMING FROM MY UPSTAIRS SHOWER AND DRIPPING THROUGH THE CEILING.
Thanks for the quick service! My water heater basically blew out the bottom and filled the laundry room with water at 3am. They were the only ones that answered and they were here in just over 30 minutes. Can't recommend enough!
